Default Contour Glucometer

Last February while in the States I purchased a Contour glucometer since my daughter uses this brand at her work on the surgery floor for an eye clinic. When I compared the reading two weeks ago between the hospital A1c and BG and the Contour which I took with me, there was a 20 point difference in the BG. All I have read online about the Contour is that is it 98% accurate. Should I add 20 points to each reading I take? Adding 20 points make some of my readings higher than my personal goal of 140. Can you all help me think through this discrepancy?
